Gaya Fusion Art Space on Jalan Raya Sayan in Ubud presents "Acts of War" – a solo exhibition by Kuwaiti-born artists Hamad Khalaf from June 3 through July 3, 2005.
An eclectic display of paintings, sculptures and wearable art – some presented on military objects abandoned by the Iraqi army – allows Hamad Khalaf to explore his favorite themes of war and Greek mythology.
Although he makes his home in Bali, Hamad Khalaf has never before exhibited his work in Indonesia. His work has been seen in solo and group exhibitions in Kuwait, Belgium, France, Italy, Greece, The Netherlands and the U.S.A.. Perhaps most notably, in 1998 UNESCO commissioned Hamad Khalaf to undertake a solo installation at their Headquarters in Paris.
"Acts of War" is intended to transport those who attend into a colorful world of ancient Greek mythology, synthesized and removed to a new plane through the artist's creative approach to materials and medias.
Gaya Fusion Art Space is open daily.
"Acts of War" runs from June 3 through July 3, 2005.
